here is stanley roberts who found some people behaving badly. >>stanley:ok lets watch the driver exiting the foothill road exit from interstate 580 here is another one how about this one from a different angle if you simply stand at the intersection of foothill road and dublin canyon road in pleasanton you will see drivers dive bombing the roadway they basically cross four lanes of traffic so they can make a left at dublin canyon road which raises a question, is
what they are doing in anyway behaving badly?" the answer is yes and no i know. how can that be allow me to explain in detail well first off there are no regulatory signs that say no, only this sign recommending that you use the second signal to get to stoneridge mall so the simple act of crossing over in it self is not illegal even with the solid white lines however, if you cross over and cut off another driver causing them to suddenly break that is called an illegal lane change and that is behaving badly also if you stop on the off ramp as you ponder the dangerous lane chance even briefy that's called impeding traffic and that is also behaving baldy now if you are thinking what i'm thinking .maybe some of those cones would fix the think a like
however over on the shoulder i found cones on a break . well not really on a break but they have been ripped from the roadway you know the fact is all drivers have to do is drive one extra block where they can safely make a left had turn but that might be asking for too much in pleaseanton stanley roberts kron 4 news

big news is coming today on the future of a controversial oil pipeline project. the results of an environmental impact study into the "keystone x-l" pipeline are due out this afternoon. a final decision may not come for several months. but today's results will be a key factor in determining whether the project will go ahead. if approved, the pipeline
would carry 830-thousand barrels of oil a day from alberta, canada to the u-s gulf coast. supporters say the project would reduce oil imports from unstable nations -- and create jobs at home. opponents warn against potential damage to the environment -- and doubt if any long term jobs would be created

kron 4's mike pelton is live at the scene now with more. the body was transported from the scene however they cannot open up the track until the environmental hazard comes through to clean up the track. they have yet to arrive on this thing. the latest from madrid is that that truck is stuck in traffic. this has created significant delays. the first received called the 615 this morning that a baby public train coming from san jose heading north bound struck a woman who had come off the track. the train was traveling upward of 79 mi. per hour since it did not have a scheduled stop here in redwood city. investigators said a preliminary investigation and said the woman may have intentionally stepped on the tracks. officials expect significant delays. that's all we get the short down the north bound up check track. trains are both directions but this is a long stretch so it's tough to cross over. it will be very slow service. every
train is going to be a local train. again the redwood city station is closed. and again they are waiting on the environmental hazard cleanup crew to get here before they can reopen in a thing. the redwood city station is close but they have set up a bus between menlo park and san carlos to keep my you can't get on or off a train here at redwood city. we can stress that enough. investigators have been trying to urge that enough. this they do not expect full service to resume within the caltran system until at least 12:00. we will break erica and to this was also monitoring the impact on the commute. >>erica: that's right. on fact caltran trains are delayed up to 25 minutes and we are hearing that there is standing room only. there also sink attracting some of those trains. but actually talk about that. generally
like to mention some of those trains were running at speeds a little under 80 mi. per hour when they're forced to sink a truck through an area speeds are reduced to just hop 20 mi. per hour. no stops at the redwood city station so instead you have to get off at either of menlo park or san carlos street this is something we will continue to monitor. this is something that will impact your morning commute looks like this is something that could actually persist throughout the afternoon. i do want to take a look at the traffic maps. some people decided to get into their cars. as for highway 101 better conditions compared to just 30 minutes ago. we saw grid lock from about march rolled up to the best airport. right now it looks like to be tough start early recovery note issues if you're using interstate 280 and as we take a look live look at the bay bridge toll plaza smooth sailing coming from all of the approaches. we will have drive times and a closer look at the rest of the bay
area and in 903 let's take a look at the forecast with an a. sunny skies to kick off this friday morning. here's a look at your day planner. by lunch time it will be breezy skies. temperatures in the mid to upper 50s and then we will top out in the upper 50s to low 60s today. so not a whole lot of warming up three 8:00 tonight mostly clear skies for it right now temperatures are finally in the '50s and downtown san francisco. your at 53:00-52. san jose good morning to your at 49. santa rosa out of the 30's and now 47 degrees 3 here's your next three days. today breezy and cool. same deal for saturday. does it have been cooler and sunday for your super bowl party is like chance for maybe a passing shower but we may actually miss the chance for some showers all together as the bulk of the moisture may stay off on the coast. will keep you posted on that.
also have your ski reports coming up a little bit later. >>: think you anny. new details this morning out of san jose. where a driver has been arrested for driving drunk and causing a deadly accident. this happened around 11-30 last night on northbound highway 85 near camden avenue. a man in a nissan rear ended another driver. that driver died at the hospital. this fire have fully taken over the garbage. it's a cruise just about 40 minutes to get it under control. neighboring homes were evacuated but the fire did not spread. >>: he came and knocked on the door and i was worried. i woke up and told my husband somebody is outside at the door so he came running. the >>: and saw flames. lots of
them. fire. that we saw a huge fire. >>: one person living and how much transported to the hospital with minor injuries and a car in the driveway was totally destroyed. >>: switching gears and turning our attention to baseball seasonbaseball season is right around the corner. and the giants fanfest is tomorrow. kron 4's jackie sissel is live at at&t park with more. is fan test time. the super bowl is on sunday but let's face it for most of the 49ers fan tear in the bay area, the season ended a couple weeks ago so now it is on the baseball season. fears of video from last year fan fest. you can meet players like matt cain tim lincecum. you can either
bring your minutes and go play catch on the field. thousands of people will become and how much is it going to cost? nothing. that's a bargain. it's going to cost nothing to come to fan fest for the thousands of folks are going to come to reach as you can see from the line to last year lot of people waiting in line for autographs but like i said you could go down on the field. agreed it's a big deal. nl stars tomorrow ed 10. folks said they were arriving at 6:00 in the morning. as i told you the dates don't even open until 10 so there will be long lines. i think they said 10,000 people showed up last year. thousand the wake of the world series. obviously the one the year before so the crowds may be down a little bit a still enthusiasm is high as we keep talking about a york and the super bowl. it's cold it's cloudy. everyone's talking about the cold
weather. absolutely beautiful out here in perfect baseball weather. if you have nothing to do tomorrow what better way to spend it in now. at&t park. >>darya: thanks for the update. pitchers and catchers report to spring training on valentines day. that's just two weeks away. opening day is april 8th, and the giant's will play the diamondbacks. if you're planning on going to fan fest. gates open tomorrow at 10- am. players will be signing autographs from 10-3. we will continue to look at the traffic now that the storm the rain has moved out. what we've got this morning is such an a few high clouds from our mount tam cam shows that. also taking a look at the update on our hot spot which is the problem with caltran.
its been more than a decade since the crew on board the space shuttle columbia perished just minutes before landing. this weekend marks 11 years since that tragedy. here's video of a remembrance ceremony at the kennedy space center for the 10th anniversary. this morning, starting at 9 o'clock, nasa ames will hold a day of remembrance for the that includes honoring the crew of the 1986 challenger disaster and the 1967 apollo one fire. the latest storm to hit the bay area wasn't much. in fact, the rain we did get brought little help. so snow levels in the sierra still remain dangerously low. the latest survey shows the
state's snowpack is at 12 percent of normal for this time of year. only one and a half inches of rain was recorded from october through december. the lowest total on record dating back to 1895. the northern and central sierra snowpack provides about a third of the state's water supply. last year was also the state's driest year since records started being kept. visit any reservoir in california and you'll see just how bad the drought is. the government's latest drought report shows the problem is getting worse. the latest map from the federal government shows nine percent of california is now experiencing what is classified as "exceptional drought." that's the most serious category. and the first time it's been recorded in the state since the government began issuing these maps 15-years ago.
the area includes parts of santa clara and santa cruz counties. two thirds of the state is now in the second-worst category of "extreme drought." and 90-percent of the state is in at least a "severe drought." conserve water. that's the message the san francisco p-u-c is telling the public today. the state's extreme drought means low water levels at the hetch hetchy reservoir. the goal is reduce water usage by 10 percent. an official announcement is expected later this morning. here's a live look here in the bay area where you're looking at generally sunny skies this morning and you
high clouds are out there. with a bit breezy out there. the japan sea the bulk of the storm pretty much out of here leaving plenty of sunshine. a bit cooler. temperatures will seem on the cooler side. is the last day of january so we actually set another record here. now the driest january on record ever. only the 600th s of a range been weak this is the driest january since the 1920's. last january wasn't good either. the third driest january on record so we're trying our best to worker way at that that is it but unfortunately the last on made barely a dent. a slight chance for showers on sunday. the made
missiles altogether. right now temperatures are in the forties and fifties this morning. it is a little bit cooler out this morning. perhaps a jacket or sweater after handing out the door. highs for today low 60s in oakland. 59 and san jose. a lot of upper 50s and low 60s. here's a kron47 day around the bay forecast try tomorrow after a chilly start to the day. then on sunday a can of a slight chance for some showers. but they will also have a better chance of them is in us all together sears to provoke sunday should be okay. >>darya: 921. new this morning. thousands of cruise ship passengers who were stuck at sea when they were hit with a nasty stomach bug are back on dry land this morning.
the caribbean princess arrived at a texas port this morning, nearly two days earlier than scheduled. and lab tests now confirm it was the norovirus that sickened more than 170 passengers on board. the cruise line says members of the c-d-c will board the ship to make sure its clean. we're hearing from some of the passengers this morning. while some say there was nothing they could do, others weren't so understanding about the experience. the caribbean princes left pasadena last saturday and was headed to the caribbean with more than four thousand people aboard. and just this past wednesday, royal caribbean's explorer of the seas returned to shore after seven hundred people
got sick, also with norovirus. an apology this morning from will be right back as the kron4 morning news returns with more of super bowl ads right after the break. to get a live look here at redwood city. the redwood city station at caltrans affected because a person was killed on the tracks. we'll have more on that
really uncomfortable during this or rooting for this adorable little kid? you know if you like watching them but do you even remember what those commercials were four? surprise. believe it or not despite all the buzz of a recent study shows 80 percent of those ads don't make people buy the stuff they are selling so why are companies spending big bucks on ads year after year. >>: they do it because if it is successful the gain is tremendous. some experts say the super bowl at cray's third when steve jobs took a chance airing a controversy to this controversial and revealing the new apple macintosh computer. apple saw a huge spike with macintosh sales. it was incredibly effective. it was
emotional. that was the benchmark and is still the benchmark today that people use to decide whether or not a super bowl ad is effective. since then the cost to produce and air commercials have skyrocketed. in the past decade forbes magazine says a money spent on advertising during the super bowl has doubled from $150 million to more than 300 million. because it's one of the few tv events of the year that's evidently ndp are proof. >>: you might want to show up to work to watch the super bowl on tape. we want to watch it live and that's the main reason why the super bowl was to have over 100 million people live command the price for advertising that it does. since companies are spending all that money on just a few hours of tv broadcasting they reveal the weeks in
advance. >>: you can vote for the end of this commercial. everyone loves a david beckham for one reason or another while others may fall short of the gold won. >>: i think that is a flop. i don't think the specials will see a bounce and sales i don't think the specials will seegood.unce and sales good answer. check it out. learning's fun now. yeah, back in our day, we didn't have u-verse high speed internet to play and learn online. all we had was that franklin fuzzypants. ah, the educational toy bear. remember when the battery went out?
